Steven Bauer

Proskauer Rose LLP

Steven M. Bauer specializes in resolving technology and life sciences disputes related to complex patent, trade secret, trademark, copyright and licensing matters, either as an advocate for his client, or as a mediator or arbitrator at two adversaries’ request. From the Firm’s Boston office, he leads Proskauer’s Patent and Intellectual Property Group.

As an advocate, Steve represents leaders in the technology and life sciences representing clients such as American Honda, Amgen, Analog Devices, Argonne National Laboratory, Celgene, Cox Communications, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Oxford Immunotec, Payless ShoeSource, RSA Security, and Transamerica Life Insurance.

His matters have involved smart phones and communications technology; surgical, medical, genetic and bio-molecular diagnostic, research and therapeutic technologies; proton beam therapy; high-energy plasma devices; nano- and semiconductor materials, lithium ion chemistry and high-temperature superconductors; satellite, cable, and wireless networks and protocols; and data encryption,digital security; voice recognition and speech generation..

As a mediator and arbitrator, Steve’s practice is international. Steve is vice-chair of the Arbitration Committee of AIPPI, the international organization for intellectual property lawyers, and has been retained as either a party advocate or a neutral arbitrator in matters in France, Germany, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Steve started his career as a law clerk and technical advisor to Judge Philip Nichols, Jr., on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Since then, Steve has argued more than a dozen times at the Federal Circuit, and has been lead trial counsel in over 30 trials, in every major U.S. forum.

Steve’s goal in every new matter is to help his client find the best business resolution, which often means settling the case long before trial, either through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution mechanisms.

His success has been recognized by his peers. Chambers USA has consistently ranked Steve as one of only a handful of “Band 1” IP lawyers in Boston, noting his “stellar reputation for achieving outstanding results,” that he is “pragmatic and flexible,” and that he is “a great strategist” and “proven trial attorney.”

I AM 1000 reports that Steve “can grasp the technical details of a particular patent matter to the same degree as the inventor.” Super Lawyers has listed Steve among the “Top 100 Lawyers in Massachusetts,” and the Benchmark Litigation guide to America’s leading patent lawyers noted that “some of his patent victories have been astonishing.”

Steve has been a Visiting Lecturer at MIT since 2012, teaching MIT’s course on patents and intellectual property in the MIT School of Engineering. Before that, he was an Adjunct Professor for 17 years at Boston University Law School.

Steve is an overseer of the Boston Museum of Science, an overseer of the Huntington Theater Company, and on the Board of Directors of the Boston Patent Law Inn of Court.
